Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

An Assessment of Bibliotherapy Centered Growth Group: A Ministry to Korean Pastors' Wives
by Kum, Young JIn, D.Min., Biola University, 2015, 243; 3701194
Abstract (Summary)

The Researcher has coordinated and attended a Bibliotherapy Centered Growth Pilot Group with eight Korean minister’s wives a few years ago, hosted and mentored by Dr. Sunny Song. The experience with Korean ministers’ wives with the Pilot Group gave conviction of the possibility of small group dynamics for change and upgrade of transformation of women in leadership. This research discovered several factors why a Bibliotherapy Centered Growth Group could work well. All the members were continuously reminded and reshaped with new understanding about emotional aspects of inner being, relationship, and spirituality. The researcher believes that the Bibliotherapy Centered Growth Group can be an advanced ministry model besides other small group dynamics for pastors’ wives to healthier and deeper relationship with God and among church members.
